You can opt to have sales tax applied to your Store orders. Tax rates will be applied based on the shipping address of the order. You must set up a catalog before the Taxes option is available.

There are two options for collecting Sales Tax. If you are in the United States, we've partnered with TaxJar to auto-calculate your rates for you. If you'd rather set your rates, or you are outside of the US, you can use our Manual option.

Note: Regardless of the selected option, it is the photographer's responsibility to collect and remit all applicable sales tax that is necessary for their business.

Before you can set up taxes, we need to know what country you are in to determine which options are available to you. If you set your country during signup, you will not see this step:

(US users only)

To set up automatic taxes, head to the Taxes tab in your Store Dashboard. Then, click "Get Started" under Automate Sales Tax:

If you already have Manual taxes already enabled, you can still click "Get Started" under Automate Sales Tax:

From there, enter the Region and ZIP code for the primary location of your business:

Once you click "Save", you can add another Business Location if you have NEXUS in multiple locations:

If you need to switch back to the Manual Option, click "Tax Settings" in the top right corner, select "Manual", and then "Save":

If you are outside of the United States, or would just rather set your rates manually, you can opt to set your own rates:

You have the ability to set rates for both a Country and Region. For example, the United States (Country) and California (Region) can have different tax rates.

To create a Country tax rate, select the Taxes section and click the "+" icon. (You are able to set the Country tax rate to โ€˜0' if necessary)

After adding a Country, click the "Add Region" if desired. Choose your Region and set your rate:

Tax Options Explained:

Appy Tax to Shipping - Apply this tax rate to the shipping cost of the order. Check here to see if this is required for you.

Appy Tax to Digital Sales - Apply this tax rate to the cost of Digital Products. Check here to see if this is required for you.

When applicable, add this regional tax rate to the country tax rate for client orders - When selected, the country and region tax will be added together.

Now that you've set up your tax rate, you're ready to enable Sales in your Galleries! ๐Ÿ™Œ
